and background checks. but limiting the ban on semiautomatic rifles. what's the nra done? gone after the president's daughters. people are hurt by what happened to those first graders. it's not a smart move to be out there backing the gun runners. for sure it's not good to sell in the suburbs or the cities. it may not even sell in the country. nobody likes what happened in connecticut and a decent society will get off its butt. a decent society will get off its butt. both the gun kind and the other kind. collin goddard was a survivor of the 2007 virginia tech shootings. he's now with the brady campaign to prevent gun violence. and mark glazer is the director of mayors against illegal guns. for measures he could control through the executive branch. they range from nominating a permanent atf director to new measures on mental health and school safety and a campaign promoting gun safety for owners. but he also called on congress to take on the problem legislatively. >> these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today, but as important as these steps are, they are i
guns. show moderation you get your nra badge ripped off you. agree to any rule on gun safety and you're marked as a traitor for life. today some of the top people in the republican party, the people to watch, marco rubio, rand paul, ted cruz are right out there front in opposing president obama on gun safety. so what happened? why is the gop, the party of guns over people? our guests are congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, a democrat of new york, and cynthia tucker, a pulitzer prize winning columnist. thank you both for joining us. you have been in this fight for so long, congresswoman mccarthy. i have to ask you, is there something out there in the water that's changed or are we confronting the old power of the nra? >> well, certainly we are confronting them. we'll always be able to confront them, but this time is different, and i think that the american people are realizing on how radical they actually are. you know, when you see the polls in most people in america support on what we're trying to do, even nra members, so that this time is different. i think it's a combination of the gu
the american people, including nra members, including gun owners, are saying we should be doing something. one of the things that we noticed, most people, nra members, gun owners, didn't know that everybody was not going through a background check. they didn't realize that 40% of gun owners are getting their guns without going through a background check. these are all law-abiding citizens when they go to buy their guns. why isn't everybody else? that's what we're fighting for, and the president is not trying to be a king. he's trying to save lives. >> we're getting a mixed message from the right, but here is the crazier talk. already there's pushback to the potential of new federal gun laws in the states highlighted on your screen. for example, state lawmakers in wyoming, texas, and tennessee proposed outlawing any enforcement of these laws. that's nullification, pre-civil war talk. and by the way, sheriffs in kentucky and oregon have said no to enforcing them. these are people saying i'm going to break the law by not enforcing federal government law. in mississippi the governor asked his stat
at the same witness table as the nra's wayne lapierre. >> you must act. be bold, be courageous. americans are counting on you. >> as the rest of the country something must be done to prevent gun violence. the nra and the allies in the republican party are digging in. we'll look at what president obama can and can't accomplish on gun safety at the top of the program. >>> plus does president obama want a deal on illegal immigration? which would be huge on his legacy. or does he want the issue hanging around so republicans get punished at the polls by latino voters. we'll get some answers tonight. >>> and it may be last call for the tea party. consider this. republicans with national ambitions claim they want tome to stop being the stupid party. conservatives are working with democrats on illegal immigration. and fox news parts ways with sarah palin. dana milbank says it's all evidence the tea party is losing steam and he's with us tonight. >>> plus the boy scouts of america are considering dropping their ban on gay volunteers and members. it's another sign of the progress this country has m
lapierre of the nra is making an all out call to oppose all new measures for safety -- gun safety. he's against it all. >>> plus the right wing chorus calls the president's inaugural address too liberal. but the latest poll shows that most americans happen to agree with the president. what's the problem? >>> let me finish tonight with what we saw all day. a strong, confident, and happy secretary of state hillary clinton in a winning performance. this is "hardball," the place for politics. ♪ [ male announcer ] why do more emergency workers everywhere trust duracell...?? duralock power preserve. locks in power for up to 10 years in storage. now...guaranteed. duracell with duralock. trusted everywhere. this reduced sodium soup says it may help lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just have to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> republicans in the northeast of this country that criticize. chris chri
tough decision. they stay with the nra and they endanger their re-election because in those districts, 70%, 80% of the people want these sensible measures. they want background checks for everyone, no exceptions. they want high capacity magazines banned. they want assault rifles banned. it's going to be a real test all over this country. >> michael steele is here. michael, you're a reasonable guy obviously. let's look at these numbers. "the washington post" numbers on gun show background checks, 88% support. this is a new "washington post" poll here. overwhelmingly support these. 88% support gun show background checks, which we don't have really today. 76%, three-quarters, approve the gun checks when buying ammo. 71% say yes to a federal gun database. that's important. 65% support a ban on high capacity magazines, and 58% support a ban on assault weapons. it gets tougher about the assault weapon ban, and i think that's why harry reid, the head of the democratic party in the senate, is nervous about submitting it to the congress because he figures it won't pass the house. >> two points
coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house s
and persuade him to lay down his weapon. which proves the point, even the nra's single answer to the issue of gun violence has just gone up in smoke. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews is next. >>> we're going into nut country. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, paranoid america is climbing out of its bunker. the near possibility that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy knoll folks believe that any limit on the wide open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carrage is to these paranoids the first unfaltering step to mass confiscation of everything from shoth guns to daisy rifles. well, tonight we let you hear from the craziest of the crazies. my question, are the regular gun owners of this country, the people who go out and hunt in hunting season, the people who shoot skeet or simply like to pack their own bull
in a minute, but first your thoughts. will the regular gun owners, the people that are in the nra in pennsylvania and they vote, democrat or republican, are they going to go with the crazies like james yeager? we're going to show him and alex jones again. >> you know what's crucial to this is what clinton did back in '94. remember, he got an assault weapons ban through congress over the nra opposition and opposition to many republicans and some democrats, and the way he got it was by bringing the cops, the police -- >> but how many seats did he lose? >> he lost a lot of seats. you have to keep the fight going after you win. so the way to get people to side with responsible gun control, gun violence prevention, is to make this a wide coalition to show them that, hey, you're with people who like to shoot, you're with people who care like cops. it's not just liberal dems -- >> i agree. >> that's the key here as we go forward. >> the raw story website got ahold of this threatening video from this fellow i mentioned, james yeager. he's ceo of a group called tactical response, and he's

of the mentally or emotionally disturbed? because if we can't do that without arousing the call to arms of the nra, then we have to wonder what side this group, the nra, is on. those who want to keep the scariest guns from the scariest people or those who want to make it easy as possible for the scariest people to get the scariest guns? what side are you on, mr. and mrs. america? we begin with gadhafi dan malloy of connecticut. governor, thank you so much. i was so taken with your emotional statements recently, the last 24 hours, and talk about it. what it means to be the governor of a state that saw the newtown horror. >> well, listen, it changes your life. you know, i had to be there on the 14th. actually i had to tell a bunch of parents and adults that their loved ones were not coming back and that's a life-changing experience, and then to go to a funeral after funeral of babies over the course of a week is also life-changing. but having said all of that, we've got to do something about violence in connecticut and in the world and in the united states. we've got to do something about the prolif

, including nra members, including gun owners, reasonable people will agree that there are things we can do to minimize the risk here, to reduce the harm and the carnage, and we have to do them. >> i thought he did a good job. i think piers did an excellent job of restraint. i don't think i would have shown that kind of restraint. he made a couple points that are very important i thought, that in england they have 37 people killed by guns a year. we have over 11,000 killed. we have a real problem with guns. let me show a bit of that ad the governor mentioned you were in. here is part of the ad you made for the group mayors against illegal guns. let's listen. >> my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. >> how do you tell a gentleman in the united states senate or congress or a woman that you may lose your career over this issue? i know we had a great liberal senator from pennsylva
pro-gun, even pro-nra people support and there is a possibility you could get high capacity magazines through the house but whatever happens, it seems like the senate will -- >> i hope we get votes. one of the things i was offended by in the simpson/bowles process was people never knew how their member of the house or senate felt because they didn't have clean up or down votes. i think we're owed that. >> the not so bad world you're correct. we should have votes up and down on this. i think right now the people who are the obstructionists, the republicans, the gun lobby, are talking more reasonably than they will a month or two or three down the road when some of these things come up for possible votes. more important than deciding to have a big package, the only way this will succeed is if the president can keep up the intensity level on his side, on the side of those people who want to see these things passed. we know that the gun lobby and the gun fanatics will be very intense not just tomorrow but six months from now and a year from now and to overcome that opposition, which will
what the nra has been doing and i wish they had listen to the majority of their members that are saying we should have universal background checks. an awful lot of them are saying i don't need a large magazine. that's not what i hunt for. i have a gun home to protect my family. we're not taking any of that away. but there's still -- if you read the blogs and everything, i mean, what's being put out there is so far from the truth. but when you think about it, you know, what we're trying to do is holistically, we're trying to look at the guns that cause the most damage, the large magazines which obviously once you go over that 15, 20, 30, 40, up to 100, they say, well, that's taking away our right, but why did we ban machine guns? that's legal by the supreme court. i still go back to the supreme court which they seem to be ignoring right now, the nr a. they don't even want to listen to their own people in the supreme court saying that the municipalities and the sats have the right to make laws to protect their citizens. >> let's go to ron reagan on these thoughts. i want you to watch some
from the nra, saying things like it is nonsense. back ground checks, that seems to be the spot where there is the most likely opportunity. >> lawmakers say look, if the senate can get through a bill that is something that can work. the nra is in a marketplace. part of the reason they satisfy such an extreme position. there are other groups competing for the same money. >> then gun owners of america will fill in the marketplace and not the nra. >> joy reid gets tonight's last word. >> the jackals attack hillary. let's play "hardball." >> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start with this. is this the day of the jackals? is this the day that the right decided to go all out attacking hillary clinton? who said this person is fair game? that she's the new valerie wilson, the new target of all their angry venom and fulminating. where do they decide this stuff? hillary clinton is the most popular woman in the world right now. democrats love her, a lot of republicans like her. she's not running for anything, certainly not now. she's retiring from a tough job. people agree
people with mental difficulties and criminal checks, i mean, the nra has opposed this time and time again. they don't want a database because they don't want these background checks. i mean -- >> why are they against them? >> they don't want any limitations on people to buy guns, including people who shouldn't be able to buy guns. i mean, 46%, as the congresswoman just said, can buy guns without having to go through a background check because they go to gun shows, buy online, or buy from the buddy down the street or some guy they met in the bar five minutes ago. and the nra has consistently fought against doing anything about those sort of gun sales. now, i think this is -- >> why don't they sell guns in bars? there's a point where any reasonable person says, no, don't sell guns in bar rooms, tap rooms. >> a big issue that the congresswoman and the vice president and everyone has to take into account, if you look back in '94 when bill clinton got the ban on assault weapons through, he did that as part of a big crime bill with a lot of stuff the conservatives wanted like expanding the deat
